Make a Difference : Become a Special Constable

TVP is recruiting confident level-headed people to join the Force as Special Constables and give some of their time each month to help police their local communities. Special Constables are volunteer Police Officers who have the same powers, uniform and equipment, duties and responsiblities as regular police officers, including power of arrest.

They work alongside regular officers and PCSOs in local neighbourhoods and must be reliable, honest, calm and able to communicate well with all communities. People become Special Constables for a variety of reasons; to give something back to the community, to gain life skills and experience or as a stepping stone to becoming a full-time officer.

Thames Valley Police Community Messaging

Do you want to receive free crime alerts and information from Thames Valley Police direct by e-mail or telephone?

For several years Thames Valley Police have operated a messaging service known as Ringmaster in support of organised Watch schemes across the force such as Neighbourhood Watch, Pub Watch, Business Watch and Country Watch.

We recognise that being a member of a formal Watch scheme does not suit everybody but you may still want to be part of a two way exchange of information and crime alerts with your local police.

As part of our commitment to improve communications across the Thames Valley we are extending our Community Messaging service to anyone living or working within Berkshire, Buckinghamshire or Oxfordshire.

Joining Thames Valley Police Community Messaging will allow us to send you information about crimes and crime prevention advice, appeals for witnesses, as well as police messages and details of meetings all specific to the neighbourhood in which you live or work. You can choose to receive this by e-mail, fax, or by voice message to your mobile or landline telephone.

To find out more about this free service and to sign up online visit: www.tvpcommunitymessaging.org . Alternatively for the Bracknell Forest Police Area contact the Neighbourhood Watch Administrator, Margaret Weber on 01344 823488 or e-mail: margaret.weber@thamesvalley.pnn.police.uk
